5 out of 5 stars West Ridge (half ass)

Couldn't get a partner but decided to head up anyway. Ending up taking the east ridge hike to the summit and down climbing half way down the west ridge and climbing back up(in hiking boots while drinking cobra), seemed like it was mostly 3rd-4th class with amazing rock and location. Def headed back to bag the full solo.

5 out of 5 stars Amazing!

Did this is one really long day, partly due to being a party of three. First two pitches are 5.6-5.7, then it's just get easier and easier. Started hiking at 6:30am...got back to Saddlebag at 10:30pm. First time simul-climbing and felt very comfortable because the last half of the climb is easy.

5 out of 5 stars Sweet

Wish we'd stayed right on the ridge the whole time. Super fun. Camped at Young Lakes the night before and went down the North Ridge after.
